Contest Winners
The Hammonton Lions Club, has completed its Third Annual Pet Photo Contest that benefited Canine Hearing Companions in Vineland, NJ , a Lions district and state project. Chairpersons Mary Gillespie and Lori Orsi were very pleased to have over 150 entries. The final amount raised was $1000 which included photo and straight donations. It was very difficult for the judges to select the winning photos. Judges included members of the Hammonton Lions Club, representatives of our local newspapers, and artist Terri Sliwecki. They made their selections based on the photos which they felt best illustrated each category. There are six $25 first prize gift certificates and eighteen $10 honorable mention certificates donated by J-B Wholesale Pet Supplies, Inc and the Hammonton Lions Club. We want to thank J-B Wholesale Pet Supplies for their generosity. The grand prize winners, Cheryl and William Kehner of Sea Isle, NJ will receive a framed pastel portrait of their cats. Henry and Annie, by Southern New Jersey artist, Terri Sliwecki. It is quite evident all the pets entered in this contest were winners because they have such caring owners.
